Bombing In LA - Last Friday - And LA Times Scooped By - Everyone! LAT Also Ignores Terrorist Angle In Oklahoma Bombing!

I have to admit it had never even occurred to me to check to see if the LA Times covered this story - since everybody else had. But guess what - they didn't!

Dear Tribune Company: Can we have the massive layoffs now? Please? Can it be that an improvised explosive device was found and detonated by police on Friday near the University of California at Los Angeles and the story still has not made the Los Angeles Times? It looks that way. ... Note to LAT editor Dean Baquet: Whatever you do, don't run this bomb story. People might be interested! That's always dangerous. But if readers don't know about it then they won't be unnecessarily worried. ...

Also not covered in the LAT is the long breaking story that the Oklahoma 'depressed student' suicide bomber may have actually been a member of a terrorist cell.
